It is May. I couldn’t let the month go by without a visit to the track. So there I sat late Sunday afternoon watching the cars go by.These pictures were taken from one of my favorite spots on the track.  (Yes I am enough of a race geek to actually have a favorite spot on the track. )   We were sitting in the Penthouse seats, at the top of  Turn One.

From this vantage point you can see the cars come down the front straight and swing into the turn and through the South Short Shoot.  If you look carefully you can even see them briefly across the back stretch.  It is the only place on the track where you can see that much of the field without the monitors.

It was late in the day, and there wasn’t much action, but I got to see the cars run, so I am happy for another year.
